Scientists from Singapore have given an added value to the okara, which is a by-product that is usually filtered out, creating a new nutritious drink that can significantly improve the health condition. The drink, made by PhD student Vong Weng Chan and Associate Professor Liu Shao Quan from the National University of Singapore contains live probiotics, dietary fibre, free isoflavones and amino acids. Researchers managed to encapsulate these nutrients in a beverage, making them capable to be absorbed into the human body promoting gut health. Furthermore, since it is the by-product of the soy milk and tofu the process of the creation is zero-waste. In addition, scientists have already filed a patent.
